Two sliding glass doors from the living room open onto a sunny deck with river views. The deck features a 4 person hot tub, redwood furniture and a charcoal barbecue. A flight of stairs leads to a seasonal vegetable garden and fenced yard with outdoor furniture. From the yard, 40 steps lead down the riverbank to a seasonal deep water dock and 3 kayaks (available mid-June through mid-September only).

we had a great time. we were 2 adults, 2 teens, 2 dogs. the neighbors were horrid loud drunks, but the house was divine so bring earplugs. i saw a bald eagle the first day. the osprey were amazing to watch. the vegetable garden was great to have. also we found endless wild blackberrries, a peach tree, a plum tree and an apple tree on the property. the beds were great, the main shower was heaven and you can just gaze up at giant redwoods while you shower.
there is a very large "butterfly lilac" tree outside and i got the most amazing photos of hummingbirds and butterflies, which were there non stop all day long!
i could see the mily way all night long, the night sky is amazing here.
the kitchen was stocked, the owners and management seemed very kind and reasonable.
the kayaks were great, not too old. the area and location is great, and you can walk to the store or a few restaurants. id definatley go back again, and i normally never hit the same vacation home twice. this was a winner!

Nice home on the river. Russian River Rentals were wonderful to work with - very responsive and accommodating. The house is just as it seems from the photos!

Impeccable service and the home was delightful. So relaxing to sit on the deck and look out at the gorgeous view. Very nice kitchen and plenty of room for our family. The absolute best part was being able to walk down the stairs to fenced garden and private dock to use the provided kayaks for a lazy paddle up or down the river. The week went by way too fast!

Thanks for the review! This year the water level fluctuated more than some... :)

La Rive Gauche isn't much to look at from the front entrance, but step inside for a very comfortable, well-equipped home. Particularly enjoyed the deck and back yard with its view of the river and impressive garden. Walking distance to a couple of good restaurants and central to Russian River wineries and the coast. Good value for a group of friends traveling together.

My friends and I had an amazing time here! Loved the easy river access through the steps in the backyard. It was nice being so secluded on the dock. Especially loved the quaint little vegetable/fruit garden, what a nice added touch. The kitchen was fully stocked, house was clean and completely comfortable. It was the perfect amount of space for 8 people. Really enjoyed the hot tub on the deck as well as the bbq grill for nice lazy summer days. Only wish we could've stayed longer! Read more
The garden *is* a great feature to this house... Fresh strawberries or tomatoes for breakfast or afternoon snacking is the best! And we love the owner for putting so much love and energy into this property and garden... I think all the La Rive Gauche guests can feel it!
Hope we'll see you again!
